Bahar field sees decrease in gas output
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Jan.4
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
Gas production at Azerbaijan’s Bahar field was 22.2 MMcfd (million cubic feet per day), which was lower by 0.5 MMcfd from October, Trend reports with reference to the US Greenfields Petroleum Company, which operates the project through its subsidiary BEOC.
The decrease was due to the natural decline in B167 and B169 wells.
Gas production at Bahar field averaged 19.4 MMcfd in Q3, up about 0.6 MMcfd from Q2-2020.
The increase was achieved mainly due to the successful recompletion in BH169 well in the horizon IX.
The Bahar Gas Field consists of 45 offshore platforms including a central processing and metering platform to gather the gas for onward transport through a three 12-inch pipelines to the shore-based gas and liquid handling facilities. The platforms, in most cases are built on 24 to 30 pilings each in an average water depth of about 16 metres.
The Bahar Project is operated by BEOC, a wholly owned subsidiary of BEL, under the terms of a Joint Operating Agreement.
Greenfields Petroleum Corporation is a junior oil and natural gas company focused on the development and production of proven oil and gas reserves principally in Azerbaijan.
